Taking a human being and restricting him in an environment such as the modern institution of learning goes against human nature. What kid sits
politely and attentive in a class for every bit of 8 hours without constant reinforcement and threatening punishment from authority?...Some will stay
hearded like cattle listening to the droning monatony, but most will show signs of restlessness, figiting, outbursts..ect. Some are downright
distracting. Back in the day, right here, in these United States a teacher would smack you for it and then your parents beat the hell out of you when
you got home. In some countries, you could beat your kids to death for insolence. So, yes you sat quietly, yes you did your homework, yes you
respected authority...yes you fought every painful minute of it in a silent war in your mind.
Today, you call the teacher a big fat pig (to impress your friends and piss off your parents) and you get sent to a principal. The principal suspends
you and sends you home. (this used to be the 2 days unofficially alotted by the school for your parents to beat the crap out of you for 48 hrs.) You
get time out and sent to your room. You leave, flipping mom the bird as you call your best friend on the cell and tell him about it. You go grab a
few joints and drink a 1/2 bottle of ammoretto, and tell your buddies how, "you aint goinna listen to noone, nomore, cause you gonna be a gangsta
some day and make mad money..yo." You do some Tai Chi you learned on a teen tour and deem yourself a transendental meditation master.
The cops arrest you and punch one. You end up serving 2 months in juvenile hall, where the days therapy revolves around why this is all your parents
fault. You go home mom walks on eggshells around you and your fathers down at the bar. You get to do what ever you want, because you threaten to run
away or call child protective services on your parents..
You return to school as a special needs child and receive extra attention. You return...A hero...a rebel...the stuff movie stars are made of...The
envy of Whipporwill High.
Back in the day, you would have been dead by now........or you would have been an over beaten, cowering peeing- in-your- pants, flinching wimp.
I think it is hollywood and lack of fear of a "good old fashin ass-whoopin", that makes some feel entitled, holier than thou, "thinking they can
do better, not wanting to stand on long lines," brat.
I think the term indigo child has mutated, and what the term was once to be based on somewhat scientific and spritual bases, is now a bunch of garbage
to make one "cool. If there are real "Indigo Children" I dont think they would appreciate this rediculous interperation
Everyone kid thinks they have powers or a gift, or a something great to offer mankind that is unprecidented until the moment of their birth. By the
time you are 20 this dillusion had already peaked, at 30 its damn near gone, and by 40 a real hero is in its place...a doctor, a teacher, ,,, a
mommy. If it doesnt go away by 50, you are now officially a bum.
So if thats what you call an indigo child today, he s just the cowering peeing- in-his- pants, flinching wimp of yesterday.
This is just an opinion of Kris. Kris doesnt not want to incure any form of harrassment, poster bashing, or personal attacks from this
